Hi all :] I should have posted this last week but I didn’t…but it’s not too late to check out my guest post over at Little Blue Backpack (one of my favorite favorite bloggers…check her out regardless of my post!)! Shannon was kind enough to include me in one of her blog’s weekly features called “My… Read more »

Antique Store Date

Two weekends ago, Ilhan and I went out for a lovely date night in the city of Orange, which is the historic center of Orange County (as in…the Real Housewives of Orange County). Being the history lover that I am (and as Ilhan is too), going to a really cool antique store is a super… Read more »

Blog Obligations

I keep an ideas journal around with me, but when it comes down to actually writing something nothing ever strikes my fancy, even though I like the ideas.

Labor Day Date

Thriftbooks Haul

I am a major, lifelong book lover. I was lucky that the university I studied at was extremely book heavy and almost every class required several books. That being said, with all my school-related reading assignments, it was a good four years without any real reading just for myself! Over the past year since graduating,… Read more »
